RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

There was no outlook written for Matthew Nieto.

2015-16

Nieto didn't show much growth in his second NHL season despite seeing a modest rise in ice time, as he generally came pretty close to replicating the prior campaign's numbers, but with six more games. A slightly undersized winger who doesn't play a particularly tough game, Nieto profiles best as a third-liner at this point, but his current role remains up in the air -- it could be anywhere from borderline top-six guy to depth forward. It's questionable what Nieto would be able to do even if he did earn top-six minutes, though he won't turn 23 until a month into the season, so he still has room for further development.

2014-15

Nieto had a solid rookie campaign, delivering 10 goals and 14 assists through 66 games last season. With the team refocusing on the youth on the roster, Nieto will be given a solid shot at an increased role and a top-six position. Nieto's upside isn't as big as Hertl's, but he has proven he has the ability to produce if he finds a consistent home in the team's top six. Watch him in camp and be prepared to scoop him up late.

2011-12

Nieto is one of the newest prospects for the Sharks, as he was taken with the 47th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. At 5-foot-11, 183 pounds, Nieto is a bit on the smaller side, but his skating proficiency more than makes up for it. Most recently, Nieto played for Boston University, where he tallied 23 points (10 G, 13 A) in 39 games as a freshman in 2010-11.
